Not sure about Florida, but some states in the south don't allow alcohol sales on Sunday. The ones that do usually don't allow it to be sold before noon. At least that's the way it's been in the southern states we've lived in, but we all know Florida is 'different.' (No offense intended to Floridians!)
Florida allows liquor sales on Sunday. It's just the time that varies from county to county. Don't know the 'starting' time in FLL (Broward County); however, Hillsborough County (Home of the Port of Tampa) recently changed from 1pm to 11am. The trend for the past two years is for counties to change to the 11am selling hour.
Pricing--Publix does have good pricing on beer and wine. And, Albertsons and ABC liquor stores also have good prices. All three of these stores are available in FLL.
Here is the Code for the sale of alcoholic beverages from the Broward County website. I think item (b) is what pertains to this situation.
Sec. 3-1. Opening and closing hours of establishments selling alcoholic beverages.
(a) The opening hours of all establishments selling alcoholic beverages and which lie outside of the boundaries of duly incorporated municipalities within Broward County and which meet all of the following requirements shall be 8:00 a.m. on weekdays and 12:00 noon on Sundays, and the closing hours for such establishments shall be 4:00 a.m. every day:
(1) Intoxicating beverage is served, sold, given away or consumed on the premises, and
(2) Said establishment has a floor area of two thousand (2,000) square feet or more.
(b) The opening hours of all establishments selling alcoholic beverages and which lie outside of the boundaries of duly incorporated municipalities within Broward County and which do not meet all of the above listed requirements shall be 8:00 a.m. on weekdays and 12:00 noon on Sundays, and the closing hours for such establishments shall be 2:00 a.m. on weekdays and 3:00 a.m. on Sundays.
